The European Law Students' Association Visits the NDC
On 11 May 2023, a delegation of 26 visitors from the European Law Students' Association (ELSA) branch in Padova, Italy, visited the NATO Defense College.
The visit provided the participants with valuable insight into the activities of the College and allowed them to learn more about the opportunities offered by NDC to students or recent graduates. The delegation was led by Ms Beatrice Regolo, Vice-President of Seminars and Conferences.
Upon arrival, the delegation was received by the Italian Senior National Representative and Director of Enablement at the NATO Defense College, Brigadier General Riccardo Brizi, after which they attended a comprehensive briefing on the history, structure and main activities of the NDC. Finally, they heard a lecture delivered by NDC Senior Researcher Dr Marc Ozawa on “The Russia-Ukraine War and NATO”, followed by an engaging Q&A session.
